The KL Insider said they are working on another Francesco Rosi title ( Lucky Luciano isn't coming until 2021) that's not The Mattei Affair. With Criterion announcing Christ Stopped at Eboli, Illustrious Corpses seems to be the most logical guess.
It is Illustrious Corpses. The FB thread states The Mattei Affair is not available to Kino.

• Brand New 2K Master
• Audio Commentary by Film Historian Troy Howarth
• Trailers
• Dual-Layered BD50 Disc
• Optional English Subtitles

B&W 85 Minutes 1.37:1 Not Rated
From Robert Siodmak, the legendary director of The Spiral Staircase, The Killers, Cry of the City, Criss Cross and The Crimson Pirate, comes this classic film noir starring acting great Charles Laughton (Witness for the Prosecution). Philip Marshall (Laughton) is a kind, henpecked accountant who strikes up a friendship with Mary Gray (Ella Raines, Phantom Lady), a young unemployed stenographer who had approached him for work. He gradually finds himself falling in love with her, but keeps the relationship platonic. With his wife suspecting him of having an affair, Philip asks her for a divorce, but she refuses and threatens him with exposure and scandal. When his wife is found dead of an apparent accident, Inspector Huxley (Stanley Ridges, An Act of Murder) of Scotland Yard suspects Marshall of murder, but is unable to prove it or establish a motive.

This release will please most here I'm sure, but unfortunately happens to be a Siodmak I'm cool on. Still worth checking out considering I think it's widely appreciated and I hold the unpopular opinion this round.

I know I'm marching to the beat of a different drum on this one but I would love to see an upgrade of Christmas Holiday. It's audacious casting and sublime mise-en scene puts in upper tier Siodmak for me. I know Dominic Harvey I know. No need to shoot me down I'm already smelling the flames.

The perfect gift for that very specific individual who wants The Underneath on blu-ray, but not King of the Hill.

Beats me. This one is a real head-scratcher.

I do appreciate how transparent the KL Insider(s) has been, though. They mentioned that Bill Forsyth/John Sayles' Breaking In
doesn't have an HD master from MGM, which is why they won't touch it. Also, they said that Anthony Newley's
demented ego trip Can Hieronymous Merkin Ever Forget Mercy Humppe and Find True Love was slated for Scorpion
until Universal discovered it wasn't cleared for home video.

This lush adaptation of Homer’s grand epic The Odyssey stars Kirk Douglas (The Vikings) as the hero Ulysses. After victory in the Trojan War, Ulysses embarks on a ten-year journey back to his kingdom. But before he can reunite with his beloved wife (Silvana Mangano, 5 Branded Women), he must defeat the brutal Cyclops, escape the spell of Circe who turns his crew into swine and outwit the Sirens who lure sailors to their death. Peril is everywhere—even at home, where the arrogant Antinous (Anthony Quinn, Barabbas) plots to steal Ulysses’ wife before he can complete his final quest in this powerful tale of heroism. Co-starring Rossana Podestà (Helen of Troy) with stunning cinematography by Harold Rosson (Singin’ in the Rain).

Caps-a-holic seems to show that Kino's 4k restoration touted for Five Graves to Cairo looks to be the same master as used on the FR release (which seems to also line up with the MoC release?). Seems like one of the more underwhelming 4k restorations if so.

It's not Kino's but Eureka's disc that has been added to caps-a-holic.
Kino has been compared to the Eureka disc on Beaver, and they're definitely different sources (unlike indeed the UK and FR discs).

Probably a Show-at-Home print, provided by Jon Mirsalis along with the original cutting continuity.

Comedy legend Bob Hope (The Ghost Breakers) once again teams up with his “Road to” co-star Dorothy Lamour (My Favorite Brunette) in this hilarious comedy directed by David Butler (Road to Morocco). Hope plays gun-shy movie star Don Bolton who, despite his concerted efforts to avoid the draft, nevertheless gets caught in it. Despite being the worst of soldiers, Don ends up being hailed as a hero and then looks to win the heart of the colonel’s gorgeous daughter (Lamour). Beautifully shot in glorious black-and-white by the great Karl Struss (Sunrise) and co-starring Eddie Bracken (Hail the Conquering Hero).

(Apparently sold out before Mr. Connery's passing, but I just missed it being gone from the site. Beamish14 said earlier in this thread that he ordered a copy on 10/21, so it had to be after that).

Marty (1955) is also down to 38 copies, per KL Insider.

Comedy legend Bob Hope (Nothing But the Truth) stars in this wonderful espionage comedy directed by Sidney Lanfield (The Lemon Drop Kid). It’s “all aboard” for intrigue, laughs and romance as Hope and Madeleine Carroll (The General Died at Dawn) contend with German spies during a daffy but dangerous cross-country chase. Bing Crosby makes a memorable cameo appearance in this free-wheeling comedy gem. Beautifully shot in glorious black-and-white by legendary cinematographer William C. Mellor (A Place in the Sun) and co-starring Gale Sondergaard (Road to Rio), My Favorite Blonde was the first of three “My Favorite” movies starring Hope, followed by My Favorite Brunette (1947) and My Favorite Spy (1951).

Color 119 Minutes 1.85:1 Rated R
From Robert Aldrich, the acclaimed director of Vera Cruz, Attack, The Flight of the Phoenix, The Dirty Dozen and The Longest Yard, comes this raunchy, hilarious black comedy exposing the everyday lives of ten metropolitan policemen. Charles Durning (True Confessions), James Woods (Cop), Louis Gossett Jr. (Diggstown), Perry King (Class of 1984), Randy Quaid (The Long Riders), Don Stroud (Coogan’s Bluff) and Burt Young (Rocky) lead a group of rank-and-file policemen from the Los Angeles Police Department, who look for ways to cope with the pressures of the job. Dubbed “choirboys” for their after-hours shenanigans, they meet for “choir practice”—periodic relaxation sessions at which the group gets drunk, chases women, plays practical jokes and reveals their innermost fears. This fast-paced, outrageous comedy gives an eye-opening glimpse into the lives of the boys in blue, who follow a simple gospel: work hard, play harder. Based on the novel by legendary novelist and ex-policeman Joseph Wambaugh (The New Centurions, The Onion Field, The Black Marble).
